Looking for an easy-to-use smart camera?

Microscan emailed me recently to let me know they’ve updated their AutoVISION machine vision software. There’s a good introductory video on their website, and if you’re in the market for a smart camera that can be put to work quickly you might want to take a look.

As they video makes clear, you’re not going to do a lot of fancy image processing with this. But if you have some presence-absence checks to make, maybe some OCV or OCR, or some code-reading, then this is worth considering.

The video is mercifully brief, (I have such short attention span these days,) but in consequence it skips over the small matter of lighting and lens selection. It also skimps on how the inspection program gets from PC to smart camera, but that’s good because it gives me fodder for a post or two.

I should mention that Microscan do have some good educational videos on their website; just look under the Training tab on their home page.
